Where did Easter go?! It is already this weekend. Luckily, I have been gathering small gifts for my girls’ Easter baskets along the way or I would be scrambling. In case you are scrambling for last-minute ideas, I am gonna give you a peek into my girls baskets for some inspiration. And no candy!
Oh and while my baskets are very girly, you will find boy versions of most of the items too.
For even more ideas, check out my Easter Basket ideas from last year.
K (age 6)
- Disney’s Pirate Fairy Blu-Ray/DVD
- Minnie Mouse and Mousepad Kit (various characters available)
- Blue Pixie Dust – FREE
- LaLaLoopsy Mini Drawing Set (Target)
- Disney Princess Shrinky Dinks Bracelet Kit (Walmart)
- Disney Fairies Silly Putty (Walmart)
- Goodies Hair Ties in Easter Eggs (clearance last Easter)
S (age 2)
- Disney Frozen Matching Game (also available in a Marvel version)
- Sofia The First Floating Palace DVD
- Anna Magiclip Doll (I had wanted an Elsa for K, but they are impossible to find!)
- Sofia the First Shrinky Dinks Bracelet Kit (Walmart)
- Little Mermaid Goggles (Walmart)
I am really excited about the Frozen Matching Game because S is at the perfect age to start playing and, well, the girls are both obsessed with Frozen. (Aren’t all little girls right now?!) The box recommends ages 3+, but I have already started playing matching games with her and she loves it. So I know this will be great for her, even if we have to start with just a few of the cards.
Of course, big sister is also going to totally want to play, and that’s ok too.
The cards are really nice, thick cardboard with bright colors featuring all of the Frozen cast — even Marshmallow (the snow monster). Sweet S will be most pleased to see Kristoff and Anna – her favorite characters.
Like most Frozen merchandise these days, even the Frozen Matching game is proving hard to get your hands on. I was able to find it on Amazon, but at a premium. That said, this is a game I would keep your eyes open for. I am a big fan of memory games for kids and for Frozen fans, this is a must for the preschool crowd.
And guess what… I have one to giveaway!!!
